In this Gears of War 4 video you will see Multiplayer Gameplay with epic knife executions! Many gameplay elements from the previous games are retained such as taking cover to avoid damage and performing active reloads. A new feature is the Combat Knife, which can be used for melee attacks and allows new ways to perform executions. New weapons have been introduced as well such as the Dropshot weapon that fires explosive drills and the Buzzkill that fires ricocheting sawblades.
Players can also perform a short distance shoulder charge, knocking enemies off balance and enemies can also pull players out of cover and perform their own takedowns. The game features 4 categories of weather: from heavy breeze (trees, leaves, dust kicking up) and grow into violent category 3 windstorms that can affect combat and weapon usage
